Porsche has expanded the 911 range with the introduction of the latest GTS model, adding a more powerful and driver-focused 911 to the line-up.

It’s powered by an uprated version of the same 3.0-litre flat-six engine in the standard 911, meaning the GTS is also now turbocharged. Porsche has tweaked the engine to produce an extra 30bhp, up to 444bhp. That’s 20bhp more than the previous naturally-aspirated GTS model.

Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class (15 on) GLC 250d AMG Line Premium Plus 5d Auto

  Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class (15 on) GLC 250d AMG Line Premium Plus 5d Auto More normally seen in larger saloons and limousines, Mercedes-Benz is now offering its cushy air suspension set up in the GLC.

Air what control? Tick that £1,495 option box and you’ll swap out the standard steel suspension for a luxury air system more normally reserved for the S Class. In its most comfortable setting it cruises nicely over bumps and as a solo driver it’s a great addition to a long motorway cruise, although it does result it a bit more bodyroll than the standard set up when on smaller roads. Some of the Parkers team found the floaty suspension a bit nauseating, and this sensation proved worse for passengers, which meant spending most of our time with the suspension firmed up in its Sport setting, at which point it feels just as stiff as the steel springs. It’s not a completely convincing upgrade. If comfort is a concern then the lower spec (SE and Sport) trims come with a more comfort-biased set up than the AMG Line’s sporty tuning. We ran a GLC with the latter suspension as a long termer and found it perfectly acceptable.
